About me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Business Analytics and Operations (BAO) area at the University of Pittsburgh, Katz Graduate School of Business. My research interests include behavioral operations management and socially responsible supply chains. I am interested in achieving a better understanding of human behavior to help companies make better operational decisions, particularly in the domain of social and environmental responsibility.

Prior to joining Katz, I received a Ph.D. in Operations Management at MIT Sloan School of Management, a Master of Science in Engineering at Ecole Centrale Paris, and a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering at University of Chile.
